To CTE Member Churches, Enabling Group members, County and National Ecumenical Officers/contact people, Bodies in Association and CTE staff cc CTE Presidents
 
I am delighted to let you know that our candle poster is now available at www.cte.org.uk/prayersofhope and we would be most grateful if you would publicise this as widely as possible and as soon as possible. The following statement will almost immediately be sent to our press contacts.
 
Press statement:
 
As our nation faces the unprecedented challenge of the coronavirus pandemic, Churches Together in England (CTE) is encouraging Christians across our nations to continue uniting in prayer, praying #PrayersOfHope in their homes at 7.00 pm each Sunday evening.

Following the overwhelming response which the National Call to Prayer and Action received on Mothering Sunday, CTE has prepared a candle poster for those who would like to place a permanent symbol in their front windows of Christ’s light shining in the darkness. Visit www.cte.org.uk/prayersofhope
 
This poster has been made available due to our awareness of the potential fire risk posed by lighting live candles, particularly on windowsills. We are keen to avoid adding any pressure to our emergency service personnel, particularly at this difficult time.

‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’ John 1:5

Light the Night at the St. Julian Centre, High Street, Shrewsbury SY1 1UH, is an inter-church service held on the 4th Saturday of each month, in conjunction with Shrewsbury Street Pastors. The evening begins at 7.30pm with Prayer, Praise and Encouragement followed by a time of refreshments. We resume at 9pm with a talk, worship and ministry time. At 10pm we send out the Street Pastors’ patrol for the night. We are building ministry teams in the areas of music, greeting, hospitality, tech, prayer, and children’s ministry and encourage you and members of your church to get involved.
